both video card should have same performance as 960m, you could run GTA 5 at median high setting. no i5 version on sale.
as for cpu, here is i3 vs i7 cpu comparison

no tax, better than previous front page deal.
the cheapest i3 version has gone, this will not last long.
you can install window to the steam machine with no problem
or you could have dual os. below is the youtube link.

Good price, but disagree with OP. Get the i3, the i7 is way overkill. The GPU will be a bottleneck long before the CPU. Use the extra cash for another stick of 4gb of ram and an SSD. I have one, it's awesome!

OP, you should add "i3 $310" in the title, they are more popular...

nice little box. I got a refurb from dell for just slightly less. I did just experience the yellow blinking light problem but I'm crossing my fingers its resolved now.

of course not, for one, i7 has quad core/8 thread while the i3 has dual core/4 thread

Have an i3 Alpha and love it. Upgraded the ram to 12gb and threw in a 500gb SSD.
